A season of change

I feel like I've been neglecting the main reason I set up this blog, to keep our loved ones updated on the lives of Jason and Jessie Evans.

A lot has happened since the last post. First of all, I've been interviewing with Utah Valley Magazine for a job that I'm just dying to get. I got a call from the publisher on Friday saying they were putting together a job offer for me, so we'll see what the offer is come Monday.

Second, because of this potential job in Orem, and because neither Jason nor I are currently students, and because Jason's job is in Orem, we see no reason to stay in our apartment in Provo. Things really fell into place for us on this one. I happened to run into Jason's aunt and uncle on campus. They have a son getting married this week and he and his bride have nowhere to live and mentioned they'd be interested in our apartment if we decided to move. Then my brother mentioned his girlfriend's parents are looking to rent out their basement apartment. Long story short, it's an amazing deal and so close to both Quomation and Utah Valley Magazine that we just couldn't resist. We sign contracts tomorrow.

I helped Rebekah Westover shoot another wedding yesterday, it was such a good experience. I'll be posting pictures of both this wedding and the last sometime this week -- so keep checking back!

My brother Geoff came home on Thursday from D.C. where he was selling alarm systems for APEX. It was fun being able to spend time with him before he headed down to Price where he'll be attending the College of Eastern Utah studying something in the computer graphics department.

I realize this is a long post, so I'll make it worth it with pictures.

1. My mom and me playing with Boston.
2 & 3. Boston, isn't he cute? I can't believe he's already 14 months!
4. Geoff and his new hair, I guess it's hot in D.C., and even hotter with hair.
5. Jason, isn't he handsome?

Yay! Does this mean you'll be closer to me? Because you were so far away, you know. And I love Boston Jack!!! And sweet on the job offer! I hope that works out well for you! AND you BETTER post those pictures because I've been waiting! =)

PS I like Jason because he watches High School Musical with us. Among other things. =)

We are keeping our fingers crossed that you get a great offer on the job with Utah Valley Magazine!! I think that it was more than a coincidence for all of us that we ran into you at the bookstore.
PS( I just got my eggplant so I'm anxious to try your recipe tomorrow!)
